At work we had a private dinner party for 20 people and I helped make 3 dozen Deviled Eggs! Remember in my Deviled Eggs video (https://youtu.be/p7nl8E2u3K0) where I showed you how to boil them but I had some eggs that kind of stuck to the shell and they were messy and hard to peel? Has that ever happened to you? Where the shells kinda stick to the egg whites and end up looking like craters. Well since then I’ve found a MUCH easier way to peel an egg, so I wanted to share my technique with you!

Peeling Eggs / Boiled Eggs (3 ways) Recipe:
First, I’ll take a large pot and fill it with water about an inch high. Now with a steam basket, I’ll just place the eggs inside, cover the pot and let it come to a low boil for 20 minutes on medium heat. If you don’t have a steam basket you can use a metal strainer that fits inside the pot.
I’ll be careful, making sure the heat isn’t too high cause I don’t want all the water to evaporate and burn the bottom of my pot.
Here’s a tip on how to cook your eggs based on how soft you like it.
For slightly runny and soft-boiled eggs, cook it for 12 minutes.
For creamy and firmer eggs cook it for 15 minutes.
And for hard boiled eggs cook it for 20 minutes.
Once they’re done, I like to take them out and plunge them immediately into an ice bath – a bowl with cold water and ice cubes. I’ll leave them in there for a few minutes until they’re ready to peel.
The shells come off so easily! It’s almost like the steam created this pocket of air between the egg whites and the shell.
It’s the incredible, edible egg. These boiled eggs are great to have in the morning for some extra protein. I love sprinkling a little bit of salt and pepper on mine, so simple yet delicious! It really brings out the flavor!
I hope you found this egg peeling technique useful and let me know how it worked out for you. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll see you guys next time. Byeeee!
